Beet Ginger Smoothie
The initial reaction to raw beets is usually a wrinkled up nose. But, once you give it a whirl, I bet you'll become quite fond of the flavor. Plus you'll love the digestive effects. Feel free to adjust the proportions of the ingredients to your liking.
1/2 small beet, chopped
1/2 lemon with pith (white part) intact
1/4 inch ginger root, peeled
1 1/2 cup organic apple juice
filtered water for desired consistency
Blend in high speed blender until smooth. Enjoy right away.
